What You Need to Know if Your Child Participates in a Clinical Trial
Every pediatric medical treatment available today was first tested through a clinical trial or research study exploring whether a medical strategy, treatment or device is safe and effective for children. Clinical trials follow strict scientific standards that protect participants and help produce reliable study results. Families willing to participate in clinical studies help researchers answer key questions that can lead to new cures, treatments and techniques for managing disease.
Clinical trials can provide access to some of the most up-to-date science available. In some instances, a trial may not result in a direct benefit to your child but may provide information to help treat children with the same disease in the future. The decision to participate in a clinical trial is up to you and your child’s doctor and will be based on your child’s unique needs.
We are currently enrolling patients in clinical research trials.
Our team of doctors and nurses at Children's can help you find a trial that's right for your child. You can also search online by visiting clinicaltrials.gov. Search for "Children's Healthcare of Atlanta" and your child's condition.Find a Trial
